Description

DETEHIT Detection Strips help you identify dangerous concentrations of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and insecticides in the air, in water, in food, or on hard surfaces. These strips are designed to identify and differentiate between two of the deadliest groups of CWAs—G agents (sarin, soman, tabun) and V agents (VX Gas)—and popular pesticides. Professionals worldwide use DETEHIT detection strips for both military and civilian applications.

 

Key Features of MIRA Safety DETEHIT CWA Detection Strips

  • Detects two distinct families of CWAs in liquid form in as little as 2–3 minutes
  • 10 individually packaged strips per sealed tube with instructions
  • Compact packaging is pocket-friendly and easy to carry 
  • A single strip can test for airborne CWAs and indicate whether concentrations have reduced enough to safely remove PPE
  • Unlike other CWA detection tools, DETEHIT can test food and drinking water for potability and the presence of CWAs or pesticides
  • Operating temperature range: -20°C to 40°C (-4°F to 104°F)

Technical Specifications

Knowing what threats you’re facing is crucial to safely navigating any situation. 

Different PPE is necessary to tackle different threats—and DETEHIT detection strips can help you protect yourself and survive potentially deadly exposure to CWAs.

Each plastic testing strip contains a white cotton cloth reaction zone with immobilized cholinesterase, a paper zone with chromogen substrate, and a yellow cotton cloth as the color standard. Once you remove the strip from its protective foil, it immediately begins to react with the air and indicates whether CWAs are present.

If it reacts within the first 2–3 minutes, the tested air, water, or food is contaminated. If the strip reacts 5–15 minutes after exposure, concentrations have become low enough that it’s safe to remove your PPE (note: ALWAYS decontaminate before removing PPE like gas masks or hazmat suits).

If the testing strip is exposed to food or drinking water and takes 15–30 minutes to react, it’s safe to eat/drink. This is a unique advantage of DETEHIT strips, making them a highly reliable tool for testing your food and water for CWAs or pesticides.

STORAGE

DETEHIT Detection Strips come in a sealed polyethylene tube and should be stored in their original packaging in a cool, dark and dry place at temperatures ranging from -40°C to +40°C (-40°F to +104°F). DETEHIT strips can be stored at temperatures up to 60°C for up to one month. Use in subfreezing temperatures may require supplemental antifreeze liquid.
